    It seems like the only conceivable minority acting nominees are Denzel and Spencer. Obviously, a lot can change, but it’s looking very possible we end up with 20 white nominees. Could it happen? And, if so, will there be as much controversy?

    The only nonwhite person I can see getting nominated is Spencer unfortunately. However, depending on what Netflix does with Mudbound I could see Mitchell and maybe even Blige getting in.

    I think Spencer is getting in, but she’s the only one I’m confident about.

    Vega seems like more and more of a possibility (though still pretty distant), but yeah, we’ll probably not have more than two to three POC/minority nominees. A far cry from the seven we saw nominated last year.

    Washington’s getting in. His movie doesn’t have to be a contender for him to get in.

    Sadly, maybe. It’s not clear if they’ll recognize Get Out and the once strong Mudbound will be distributed by awards killer Netflix.

    They’re probably gonna have to recognize Get Out. The acclaim early in the year was just too good. And from the polls, a lot of the forums would seem to agree.

    Personally, I’m more confident in Blige getting nominated than Spencer, given all the fuss about her performance. Spencer might, too, but I don’t know for sure how strong or prominent her part in The Shape of Water will really be to make her a big contender. I also see Elba finally getting his due this year. I don’t know how likely until I see Molly’s Game, but he’s had four or five movies this year and at least two came back with great performances from him, so he might pull an Alicia Vikandar or a Tom Hardy.

    I’m also pretty confident there’ll be another black director nominated this year, whether it’s Dee Rees or Jordan Peele. I consider both strong contenders based on their films.

    Overall, though, no it’s not gonna come back. We have two great black films that’ll both get recognized in multiple categories. The question is whether Hispanics or Asians will get their due this year.

    I’ve seen The Shape of Water, and trust me, Spencer is a contender. I’d be shocked to see her miss out for this after her nominations for The Help and Hidden Figures. Her last scene in particular seals the deal.

    Sight unseen I have Washington, Spencer, Tyson, and Brown getting in. Academy still has a good chance to not repeat and I believe they’ll avoid it.

    What’s the problem with that? If all of them are worthy of a nomination. Stop forcing “diversity” and being annoying. I’m latino and I don’t give a f*ck if there are no latin people nominated this year.

    #OscarsSoWhite is OscarsSoStupid.

    All racism aside, a good performance is a good performance and a good movie is a good movie. It should not matter what colour the nominee is because they got freaking nominated for a freaking Oscar!! Only a select few people on the planet get that distinction and I think we should honour those people for the fact that they got recognized for their hard work instead of focusing on the colour of their skin.

    Simply put, if a white actor gets nominated for a superior performance in a superior movie over a black actor who had a subpar performance in a subpar movie, does this mean that the Oscars are racist? No, the white actor got a nomination because he was the better actor, and that does have anything to do with the colour of ones skin.

    May the best of your todays be the worst of your tomorrows.

    Those who’ve seen Downsizing say Hong Chau is easily the standout. I’ve heard buzz of her possibly getting a supporting actress nomination.
